Lil Rounds, Scott MacIntyre and Jorge Nunez advanced to the "American Idol" Top 12 Wednesday night.
MacIntyre, a blind piano player, and Puerto Rican crooner Jorge Nunez both offered emotion-driven ballads. Judge Simon Cowell called powerhouse belter Lil Rounds "brilliant."
Judges also announced the eight wild card contenders: Megan Corkrey, Jasmine Murray, Ricky Braddy, Jesse Langseth, Anoop Desai, Matt Giraud, Von Smith and Tatiana Del Toro.
The singers will compete for the remaining three spots in the Top 12 at 8 tonight.
